Assess with Google for Elementary Classrooms
In this workshop, I introduce ways that many digital tools can be used for both formative and summative assessments. We'll also explore creative ways teachers can provide individualized feedback to students for projects and assignments. We will use examples from a range of subject areas and tools to inform our discussion about their advantages over traditional means of gathering assessment and implications for classroom practice. We will use Google Docs, Slides, Forms, and Drawings to create assignments, check for understanding, provide feedback, and modify instruction. We will then use Google Classroom to grade assignments and Google Sites to share assignments with an authentic audience. 

Attendees will be prepared to integrate real-time note taking and respond to anonymous questions, utilize comments and screencasts, create surveys and quizzes, and publish and receive feedback on student work.

Narrative and Creative Writing with Google Slides

Let's look beyond the slideshow! Google Presentations can be used for so much more than bulleted talking points. In this session, we'll see how Google Slides can be used to support and develop creative writers.

From comic books to graphic novels, mock Tweets and Instagram posts, to "choose your own adventure" stories - you’ll explore some of the innovative and creative ways your students can use Google tools to demonstrate their learning.

In this workshop, we will:

*Create REALLY FUN STUFF!
* Discuss Google Slides as a tool in the writing process.
* Share ideas how the use of mentor texts can enhance students understanding of literary elements such as narrative shifts and dialogue.
* Share options for digital student/teacher/peer feedback.
* Explore design principles of color and layout.
* Find free image resources that promote digitally-aware citizens.
* Investigate publishing possibilities including slides as an e-pub tool as well as inexpensive printing options.
